I am not a leader and I do not want for you to follow me.
I would like it if you walked with me though.
I have chosen to walk the path that Jesus has paved for me.
He is the Good Shepherd and He leads the way.
If you will walk with me on this path we will be going in the same direction.
We will be walking the path of righteousness.
The straight and narrow way that leads to life.
So please do not follow me but follow the One who leads me.
I have much still to learn and I only want to share what He teaches me.
For Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life.
Jesus did not come to be served but He came to serve. He did not come in force, but in humility. Born in a manger, and raised by a carpenter. He taught us that the one who desired to be first would be last and the last would be first.
I wrote this because I see how easy it is for people to not even realize the times when they have put more into another person than their faith in God. I have learned that I have done this myself. We don’t mean to do it, but it happens when we get stars in our eyes and focus more of our attention on them and because we are so busy looking to this person we don’t even realize that we still love Christ but He is not who we are actually following.
A few years back I was called to pray for a woman. So I went to pray for her. I had not realized how demoniacally oppressed she was till this night. I had led her in the sinners prayer prior to this night and she had began to come to church with me and study the Bible with me. This night she was rolling on the floor of my neighbors home then she would sit up and look fine. I talked with her during these moments and asked her if she wanted me to pray for her which she answered yes. So I prayed for her but as I was praying she changed, she started literally worshiping me which I had to stop.She called me her savior which my response was only Jesus saves and let go of her hands and picked up my Bible and held it between us. I started humbling myself and quoting every scripture on Jesus and who he is and said that I was nothing but a vessel to be used and that I would not receive any kind of worship. Then what was speaking through her changed again and then began attacking me. I will get more into detail on this incident at a later time, but to conclude she eventually bounced up off the floor and ran out of my neighbors apartment. I was not scared except for when it called me savior and god. That night taught me more than the importance of keeping one’s spiritual armor on and the importance of prayer and spiritual warfare it taught me how easy it is for someone to see you as their salvation. I know there is not one thing I can do to save another. I don’t have that kind of power. Yes I can pull a person who is drowning to the safety of the shore but I am not your savior and yes I can clean and bandage a wound but I am not a healer.There is only One True God, And there is only one way to the Father, His name is Jesus. Call on Him and He will save you, follow Him and He will lead you on the path that leads to life. He is my everything and He is the only One to follow.
Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Philippians 2:5-8 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Philippians 2:3-7, “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
